This month let's consider the word 'wholeness'.
.
Wholeness OE (hal) means healthy, and is the quality, or state of being whole, sum total of all parts; complete; entire; comprising the full quantity, intact; pertaining to all aspects of human nature especially. physical, intellectual and spiritual development.(Dictionary.com).
.
The whole person means the person and their family system including those who are not immediate family members (Parish Nurse Standards of the Catholic Charities of Lacrosse Diocese,1999)
.
The care of the whole person by the parish nurse ministry is integrated emotionally, physically, intellectually, socially, and spiritually.
.
How do Parish Nurses use this human care process? This care comprises prayer, presence, valued interactions, respect, providing spiritual support, advocacy, education of prevention practices, safe environment and health promotion.
.
Let's pray for wholeness of harmony, balance, wellness on our way to a perfect life.

John 10:10, states, "I have come that you may have life, and have it more abundantly."
